Unable to connect to LAN from inside an LFS system

Did you install the DHCP client daemon? It is needed if Qemu has DHCP
enabled. Otherwise, you need to learn to use ifconfig; but my guess is
that it uses DHCP if the livecd detected the network. Pings don't work
until you get a valid IP.

You can find the DHCPCD or DHClient on the BLFS book.
